Buddha was born, grew up, and died a Hindu. He was restating with a new emphasis the Ancient ideals of the Indo-Aryan civilization". Further, "Buddhism did not start as a new and independent religion. It was an offshoot of the more ancient Faith of the Hindus. The Buddha came to fulfil, not to destroy. Sir Radhakrishnan the late president of India has opined that "The Buddha did not feel that he was announcing a new religion". While Buddhist culture lost its continuity in the `mainland during the Medieval period, it remained an active force in the mountainous fastness of the inner Himalayan sanctuaries. Buddhism has continued to be a living reality in Himalayas since its inception. In India, the Buddhist Heritage is now available only in the monasteries and the ancient monuments. Their conservation in the Natural setting, their systematic tabulation and revaluation can alone testify to the powerful Cultural links that existed between Buddhist India and the Buddhist world. Himalaya, the yongest, the highest and the most unstable Mountain chain on the earth, is the homeland of millions of people of India, Pakistan, China, Myanmar, Bhutan, Bangaldesh, Nepal, etc. It has provided a natural and cultural heritage in a diverse ecological milieu, controlled the climate, human, migration and settlements in the Mountains and in the peninsular Regions in these conutries. Himalaya is the supreme mountain range on the earth. In the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna has said that `among mountains I am the Himalaya`. The great Sanskrit poet Kalidasa described it as Devatma. From time immemorial it has allured the saints and sages, Adventures and mysteries influence all the spheres of life of the people from the very early times. Thorughout human History mountains have been looked upon as Sacred because of thier grandeur, and also because their upward thrust symbolize the aspiration of the human Soul for unity with the divine. To Worship and meditate in Himalayas is the wish of Sadhu and saints. We have been worshiping Himalaya for the last so many centuries. The idea of worshipping is realisation. Himalaya is the real lifeline of the buddhist culture in its true sense. Buddhist considers Himalayan Kailash as the centre of the cosmic Universe inhabited by the Buddha and a retinue of five hundred Bodhisattvas with Tantric deity. It is also the seat of Female Deity Vajra Varshli, Samvaras`s Spiritual consort. Hindus Look upon Kailash as the abode of Lord Shiva Pashupatinath and his consort Parvati. Because of his strongly phallic form, serious Shiva devotees identify it with Lingam. The Jains called Kailash Astapada where the first Tirthankara Rishabha attained Moksha. In the final analysis Kailash is to Buddhists and Hindus, what Rome is to Catholic Christians, what Mecca is Kailash is to Mohammedans, and what Jerusalem is to the Jews. The mentor of Buddhism, the inherent one Lord Gautama Buddha was born in Himalayas Lumbini in Nepal. He had all the Wealth at his command but relinquished everything for others and achieved enlightenment. He found solace in love, compassion and service of others. Love for others became the aim of Bodhisattva and thought travelled from Nepal to Bodh Gaya and World over. Printed Pages: 646. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 41757
